Thoughtography: how your mind sees art

Explore how your brain sees art with our pop-up interactive Thoughtography installation.

While you look at a selection of works from the Andy Warhol | Ai Weiwei exhibition, we'll measure your brainwaves and create 'thoughtographs'. The result is a unique depiction of how your mind responded to the different artworks in the exhibition.

Share your thoughtograph on Facebook or Twitter to go in the draw to win weekly and major prizes.
